    Help!!! Headset loose!

    Recently replaced my suspension fork with a rigid one. Now the headset is loose. I transferred the crown race from the old fork to the new one.
    The top nut was tightened down with the stem bolts loose. No dice.
    Any ideas? Did I put the headset pieces back incorrectly?

    Remove the top cap. Is your steerer lower than the top of your stem? By how much?

    Did you really have to open a new thread when there was an ongoing discussion about your issue in your original thread?

    Anywho, check online. The manufacturer of your headset should have a diagram of how the headset is put together correctly. Good luck.
